The Wildcats (8-9, 1-4 Big 12) connected on 59.2 percent (29-of-49) of its field goals, including 60.9 percent (14-of-23) in the second half, to snap its longest skid to start league play since 2008-09. The Longhorns are now 2-3 in the Big 12 and have lost games to No. 2 Baylor, Oklahoma and the Jayhawks.
"It's gone - a great opportunity - and you can't get this back", Huggins said. West Virginia out rebounded TCU, 38 to 24. The Wildcats do have a good defense, that ranks 41st in points allowed.
It was the 100th game between K-State and a ranked opponent in Bramlage Coliseum history. However, West Virginia responded with 7 straight of their own to take a 7-4 advantage into the first media timeout at the 15:52 mark.
The teams went back and forth over the next few minutes before West Virginia closed the gap to 21-17, but Sneed gave K-State some breathing room with a 3-pointer and pair of free throws to extend the lead to 26-19 with 5:07 before halftime. He didn't receive a ton of help though as the Longhorns made just six triples and shot just nine free throws in the game.
With two minutes left in the first half, it was a fastbreak dunk by Antonio Gordon assisted by Dajuan Gordon that got the crowd on their feet pushing the Wildcat lead to 11. Gordon tied his career-high in the opening half.
